Bang Bang. You're dead

I'm muchly impressed with this AIDS spot for MTV. The surreal and disturbing turn of events depicted here gets the anti-HIV message across to youngsters tempted to live only for the moment.

Found on Illegal Advertising.

I think it's misleading because so many people live with HIV for years now.

I agree, but surely it is a characteristic of youth to push long-term consequences of any action to the back of the mind.

As I am a child of the 80's I still have the first Australian Government's AIDS campaign ads with the Grim Reapers ten pin bowling down families burned into my memory - I ain't forgetting that!
